There are a number of strains of the Rabbit Calicivirus (RHDV) present in Australia. The original virus RHDV1 was released in Australia in 1995 to help control wild rabbit populations. The virus itself most commonly causes sudden death in rabbits without apparent clinical signs. In some cases infected rabbits may have a fever, are lethargic, off food and bleeding from the mouth or nose. A new strain of Calicivirus will be released around Australia in the first week of March. Now is the best time to ensure that your pet bunny is protected.

Bernie Urolith

Bernie, a 7-year-old female desexed Labradoodle, was presented to Dr Jack for examination. Her family noticed her to be urinating lots of blood and she seemed to be having difficulty urinating. Bernie was also known to have had urinary tract infections in the past. When examined, Dr Jack could feel a solid mass in her abdomen. He felt that this was likely a bladder stone, due to its size, location and clinical history. This was confirmed with both an ultrasound and an xray of her abdomen. A single solid mass was visible in the bladder with both tests.  Bernie underwent surgery the same day and Dr Jack removed a rather large bladder stone measuring 7cm diameter. Ouch! Bernie had an uneventful recovery, going home the next day. She is feeling much better now that the stone has been removed!
